Judges Comment

Powerful action shot with the extreme poses of the eagles giving the impression of an aircraft dog-fight.

Photographers Comment

I'm Kurt Wecker and live in PA. These Bald Eagles were shot in Maryland in the fall. The Eagle with its talons out just lost a fish and the other came out of nowhere to chase it down. I used a Canon MKIV with a 500mm & 1.4x to take this shot. All my post processing is done in Lightroom 4. Mostly cropping and a little sharpening was done to this shot. Thanks, Kurt Wecker
